Olmert case: Court delays decision on foreign witness’s pre-trial testimony

Jerusalem district court allowed publication of the prosecution’s request to hear a foreign witness’s sworn testimony in the case against prime minister Ehud Olmert in a pre-trial proceeding. However, the court delayed its reply until after Independence Day, Thursday, May 8.

These applications are filed normally when a foreign witness is about to leave the country.

The witness’s departure before the hearing could seriously damage the prosecution’s case. If he thought he was getting in too deep in a complicated affair, he might get up and leave. On the other hand, he may have agreed to the delay. In any case, it will have given the defense more time to marshal their arguments against the prosecution’s case.

The prime minister’s former confidential assistant Shula Zaken was grilled by police for the fourth time Tuesday. She is under house arrest until Friday for refusing to answer questions. Her attorney Micha Fetman denied she had been asked to turn state witness against her former boss. Later, he suggested that she might consider breaking her silence if one of four previous probes against Olmert were dropped.

  1. I don’t know if this is true or not. If it is true, why should we be surprised? Ehud Olmert is a traitor. Why wouldn’t a traitor take a bribe to sell out his people?

    George W. Bush is also a traitor. Saudi princes generously rewarded the young Bush for his failing Harken Energy stock. I guess we don’t call this a bribe in polite company but what is it? Who in the White House authorized those flights of Saudi royals and bin Laden family members out of the country as thousands of Bush’s fellow citizen lay smoldering beneath the World Trade Center towers? Who authorized these flights a a time the FAA prohibited all domestic fights.



    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor—he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men (The “Jews” are humiliating the Palestinians?). He rots the soul of a nation—he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city—he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared…….Cicero, 42 B.C.E.
